This is a cloned deed to function as residential deed which allows you to play tenant and landlord on residential lot. Landlord will buy the lot and the tenant will rent that lot. This object is available in buy mode misc.

Can this be done?

Thanks,

Options and Descriptions:
View = allows to view lot info, who's the owner and lot value.
Set Me the Owner = allows you to set up the active sim to be the owner of the lot.
Transfer Ownership to.../Sims = to transfer ownership to family member.
Sell This Lot ($lot value) = option is available to present owner which allows you to sell ownership to other sims who are not living on current lot. Afer you sell it "Deed" will automatically disappear and will be transported to buyer's inventory.
Buy This Lot ($lot value) = buy ownership of the lot.
Term of Payment (Weekly/Daily) = option is available to owner which allows you to set up term of payment of tenant. Weekly is every Wednesday (12:00PM) and Daily is every 12:00PM.
Rental Fee (By Percentage/By Amount) = as requested above. Amount to be paid by tenant.

Just like in my child support mod, there is also a tracking of behind payments, if the tenant is broke, the landlord will still receive of payment from "nowhere" and that amount will be charged as credit account of tenant. And on every Tuesday that amount (equal of less than 10,000) will be added to bills. And in tenant's pie menus you will see "Lot Rental fee" option, for viewing/paying of behind payments.

How to start and play tenant and landlord:
1. Buy this object in buy mode (misc) and click on "Set Me the Owner", this will set the active sim the first owner of the lot.
2. Click on this object again and choose "Sell This Lot", a menu of neighbor will appear. Choose your buyer (landlord) then the amount in specified in lot value will be deducted in buyer's family fund and will be added to your family fund and this object (residential deed) will be transported to buyer's inventory. Save and exit to neighborhood screen.
3. Play the buyer's lot (landlord), check his inventory and set up term of payment and rental fee.
4. You're done. If you are playing landlord's house you will automatically receive a rental fee from your tenant depends on your set up and if you're playing tenant's house you will automatically send rental fee to your landlord depends on landlord's set up.
5. There are two ways to sell back ownership to tenant. First is play the landlord's house and click on "sell this lot" and second is play the tenant's house and buy "Deed" object in buy mode and click on "Buy this Lot".

I know you have a lot of questions but sometimes testing will answer your questions. So, pls help me.

Have fun!


UPDATED: v1.1
- sorry I forgot to remove per hour, I used that for my testing.

UPDATED: v2.0
- Fixed Percentage error.
- Block Home Business lot. You cannot sell a lot that already started a Home Business and if someone owns your lot you cannot start a Home Business this is to avoid resetting of landlord's ownership and messing up with Home Business ownership.

UPDATED: v3.0
- Added option "Transfer Ownership to Neighbor" - allows you to transfer ownership without selling of lot.

UPDATED: v3.1
- Remove Blocking of Home Business, but still you cant sell a lot already started a Home Business.
Note: If you sell or transfer your lot to someone not living on your lot, then you started a home business, lot ownership will be transferred to someone who started a home business and when you shutdown your home business, ownership will reset to nothing (default or normal setup of the game).

UPDATED: v3.2 (Alpha)
- Recoded. If you have an existing Landlord setup, pls do a setup again and expect an "Attributes out of range" error. This is because I added Attributes to funtion as a second storage for your setup to avoid resetting of setup after saving.


NOTE: Pls do not start "Home Business" or do "Make Many..." if you're going to play Tenant and Landlord Mod.


FAQ:
Q: Everytime I set the payment plan, save it, then re-enter the Landlord's lot, it sets back to zero or it sets back to weekly.
A: Please do page#4 post#86 on tenant's house.

UNINSTALL:
1. Pls return the ownership back to tenants before removing this hack from your Downloads folder.
2. Or in case you forgot to do that, and you already removed this hack from your Downloads folder, play your tenants lot then start Home Business and Shutdown it, this will reset ownership of that lot.

This mod doesn't work for me at all.

Everytime I set the payment plan, save it, then re-enter the Landlord lot, it sets back to zero. I've tried downloading this twice. Does anyone have any suggestions.? I thought it could be another mod conflict. Has anyone else expereicnced any problems regarding the reset?

Ok not sure if this helps but since the 2.0 update I can no longer start a home business even on a lot that is not using the tenant/landlord functions.

Thank you for adding the cheaper rent in for me.

I also can't set up a home business on a non rental lot, the option is there but they can't phone up.

kiwianagirl and lindaetterlee,
Yes, you cant start a home business if someone not on your lot owns it. The reason why that I did this If we shutdown our home business it will reset lot ownership to nothing. Ok I'll remove it now in v3.1.

Pls. see my journal for my hacks compatibility. Thanks.

Is there no way to make it so rentals can't have a home business ( so it doesn't reset anything) but non rentals can - I just don't understand your first line sorry.

In v3.0, if your lot is not a rental home and you want to start a home business, you should click on "Set Me the Owner" first before you could start a home business. But I think it's better to remove it because I was using a global bhav there.

After putting this in I can no longer start a home business using a phone. (I haven't tried or tested the landlord/tenant functions at all yet). When I try to have them start a business they go to the phone, pick it up, and hang it back up immediately. I CAN start a home business using the computer but not the phone. So my aspiring entreprenuers have to spend $1000 they may or may not have to buy a computer so that they can start a business.

By the way, Thanks. This is a cool idea. I haven't rented any lots yet, but even with the can't start a business problem, I can't bear the thought of getting rid of the hack. Do you think you can fix it? Or maybe remove the fix that affects being able to sell a lot with a business on it (as a separate version)? I'm thinking that fix is causing the problem with starting businesses, but I'm just guessing, I don't really know anything.

I've seen this in one of my custom house that I downloaded here. What I did, I returned ownership back to tenant then moved out the whole family (tenant) to sims bin. I bulldozed that house then pulled out the same house again from house bin. Then moved in that family to that house, it resolved the problem maybe I got a new uncorrupted lot id, because my mod works based on lot id. Pls try that. Thanks.

I like the mod but I found on little thing where if the tenant doesn't have the enough money to pay the rent it still says that the sim paid the rent and nothing happens.

could you have it where maybe they have like two times to pay the rent or the repoman comes and does his thang or have it where the sims money balance goes negative

or maybe have a choice where you could have the rent mailed to the tenant
if not no big it's still COOL all the same good work.

Look for that option in the tenant's pie menu on the deed.

Yeah, I have 3.1. I've never had any of the previous versions. My sims just can't start a business using the phone. Anyone else have this problem or is it just me?


Nevermind. I don't know what was causing the problem. I unistalled FFS because it was showing military time which is hard for me to translate. It deleted my download folder AND critical TS2 folders which I didn't expect to happen. Luckily I backed up my download folder about 2 weeks ago, I wished I had a more recent backup but at least most of it was saved. For the critical TS2 folders, I uninstalled and then reinstalled OFB. I redownloaded most of the hacks that weren't backed up including this one. I don't back up my saved sims so I had to start over. Now, all of a sudden I'm not having a problem with starting a home business by phone anymore.
